Solana (SOL) Prints a Possible Bull Flag, Opening the Doors to More Gains
With respect to price action, Solana has printed what looks like a bull flag as seen in the daily SOL/USDT chart below.
From the chart, it can be observed that Solana has had an impressive run since the beginning of the year. Its daily MACD points to an ongoing correction from the recent high of $49.99. The daily RSI and MFI also point towards a similar trajectory.
However, the selling of Solana has reduced as seen through the diminishing trade volume. Therefore, Solana could be undergoing a consolidation phase similar to the one it went through around the $13 price area and before it shot to $30.
To note is that Bitcoin is currently undergoing considerable selling pressure and the aforementioned bull-flag could be invalidated by a BTC drop below $46k. If this were to happen, Solana will most likely battle to maintain the $36.50 price area as support. This area also coincides with the trajectory of the 50-day moving average (white) as seen in the chart above.
